The Ovation Awards!!  
Mark & I had a wonderful time at the Ovation Awards last night!! I got to see Corliss and Dianne (two lovely ladies I met at the Colony almost exactly one year ago.) It was nice to see them since I hadn't really seen them since "Last 5 Years" in January. :)

Probably one of the best parts of the evening was seeing the cast of "It Came From Beyond" again. :) It was SOOO lovely to see Heather - it's been a while since I've seen her and really - she's the sweetest person! I also saw Todd Fournier who introduced me to his lovely wife (they just got married!!) And of course it's ALWAYS lovely seeing Kevin and Julie!!

The nicest surprise of the evening was running into Bets and Steve outside in the lobby. :) I didn't know that they'd be there, but it was SOOO nice to see them! :) And I could go on and on about what a wonderful time we had, but instead, I thought I'd just post some pictures of the evening.

It was SUCH a difference being in the audience - last year I worked at the Ovations
and this year I just wanted to relax and watch the show.

The highlight of the entire show was hearing Kevin sing his tribute to Jerry Herman.

Kevin's category was announced by Doug Savant Sam Harris thanks Terence!! (the little blur below)
The winner for the category was Bob Martin for The Drowsy Chaperone
(who I LOVED, but remember my Ovation rant earlier??)

The It Came From Beyond contingency was sitting almost directly across from us!
Pictured here is Todd Fournier with his lovely wife and Julie. :)

It was SUCH a lovely surprise to see Bets and Steve there!! :)
Pictured here is Steve, Bets, Julie, and Kevin. :)

Heather Marie Marsden is possibly the sweetest person ever!
She recently broke her thumb - you can see her cast in the picture above. :(

This is my favorite photo of the entire evening! Julie was sweet enough to take it!
My handsome hubby in a suit, me, and Bets - I just love this photo!!

Today is our last day out here so we're going to run around and pick up some things for our families and friends, pack, and get ready to go back home... We've had such a wonderful time here this weekend!! Thanks to everyone who put up with my long travel entries!! Big *HUGS* to you all!!

I am so glad you had a wonderful time at the awards! It's a whole lot different attending an event than it is working an event. (That's how I felt with Relay For Life.)

Have a wonderful time today!!

It was a wonderful evening and so nice to see everyone!! I enjoyed working at the event as well, but being able to see the show from the house was much more relaxing!! :)

Thanks for sharing your travel experiences, Sheri! I always enjoy it and I'm very happy that you had such a wonderful time. :) I love the last picture of you and Mark. You both not only look really great but also happy.

I hope your last day will be nice too and that you have a safe trip back home! Big *hugs* to you, Sheri!

Thanks for reading through all my long entries, Sabine!! :) And Mark & I had a wonderful time at the Ovations the other night... It was just SOOO crowded in the lobby after the show that I was starting to feel a little claustrophobic... It was SOOO nice seeing everyone, though. :D

Hope you're having a lovely week, BIG *HUGS* to you!! :D

Hey Sheri! I'm glad you had such a wonderful time. :) Sorry i haven't commented before hand, but I have had my nose in the books. I had been reading though, and as always loving the pictures. That last picture of you, Mark, and Bets is great! HUGS! Have a safe flight home.

Oh wow! What grand fun. I love your dress. Safe travels home.

It was a lot of fun!! It was especially nice to see some people I haven't seen in a while (Corliss and Dianne) and get to finally meet Lily. :) And thank goodness with all my dieting... er... healthy eating... I actually fit into that dress (I was worried!) ;)

Re: Ovations
Hi there Terence!

Thanks so much for your comment! I always enjoy the Ovations - whether I'm volunteering backstage or in the audience. :) And thanks so much for jogging my memory :) - I've changed the caption on my photo above... I was thinking... That doesn't look like Doug Savant, but it was so blurry I couldn't be sure (and my memory of the presenters were pretty fuzzy.)

Thanks so much for a great evening!!

when else are you going to make long entries than when your traveling?
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 15th, 2006 10:34 am (UTC)
Very true... unless I'm talking about religion (or my lack thereof...) or politics... ;) Three key things lead to my verbosity... theatre, religion, or politics - and sometimes it's a combination of all three. ;)

Oh my gosh, everyone looked SO stunning!! I'm really not one for dressing up (as evidenced by my daily lack of makeup...) but I do have to say that it was SO nice to see everyone so dressed up last night. :D And Mark really looked handsome in his suit!! :D

Sorry I'm so late with this, but I just finished reading all of your LA entries...I'm so glad the trip turned out so well! It looks like you had such a good time. :) Thanks for sharing all of the pictures; you and Mark always look so cute in your pictures together, and your outfit for the awards is gorgeous!

It was so nice to see you and Mark at the Ovation Awards. Thanks for posting photos of that evening - I'd missed seeing some of those pictured.
Dianne and I went to Sterlings at Vitello's last night to see/hear Kevin. He put on a great show! By the end of the evening we'd spoken with Kevin and his mother, who had flown in from Chicago. Sheri, you would have enjoyed Kevin's show!

Re: kevin e.
YAY!! Thanks for the great cabaret re-cap!! I'm SOOO glad that you both got to go and that you enjoyed yourselves!! It's been such a long time since I've seen Kevin's Mom - I think the last time I saw her was a couple of years ago at the Calphil concert. I know he'll be doing more of these shows so I look forward to seeing it!!

Thanks so much for your comment!!
